Charlie Edinburgh Hosts Cardiac Awareness Workshop at Leyton Orient FC

The Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation (JE3 Foundation) visited Leyton Orient Football Club last week, with Charlie Edinburgh, the foundation’s CEO and son of the late Justin Edinburgh, delivering a session to the U18s squad in the O’s very own Justin Edinburgh Stand at Brisbane Road.

During the session the apprentices learnt a wide range of vital life skills such as detecting a heart attack or cardiac arrest, the difference between the two, how to correctly perform CPR and use a Defibrillator.

Speaking after the session, Charlie Edinburgh said: “It means such a huge amount to myself, everybody connected with the charity and my family to be here and deliver it to the boys. They’re a fantastic group and I really feel they have taken away something valuable today that hopefully they never need to use, but they’re better equipped now for the future if they do see somebody in cardiac arrest as they have the skills and the know how of what to do in that situation.”

Leyton Orient Under 18’s Goalkeeper and Captain, Lenny Holden, added: “We feel really lucky to have had Charlie come in and speak to us and teach us through the steps of CPR. It was really valuable for the lads to learn about, and we know it can happen to anyone.”

The Justin Edinburgh foundation are campaigning for ‘Justin’s Law’ to legally mandate Automated External Defibrillators in all health and sports facilities in the UK. 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen each year – defibrillators save lives.
